Charting for WPF 1.8

MindFusion has released a new version of its Charting component for Wpf with the following new features:

Styles and Themes
Styles define the appearance of individual chart elements such as the axis, the series and the legend. Each ChartTheme contains a collection of styles and defines the appearance of the whole chart. The new version lets you:

  • create themes based on the appearance of an existing chart;
  • create themes with the ThemeEditor tool;
  • save themes to XML files;
  • load themes from XML files;
  • use a number of predefined themes.

The “Working with Themes” tutorial gives detailed information on how to create, save, load and edit themes with MindFusion.Charting for WPF.

Improved Design Time Support
You can now edit all collection properties, including the Series collection, the brushes and strokes in design time through the property grid.

Axis Intervals
The new AxisSettings.IntervalCount property lets you specify the exact number of intervals at the axis. In such case, the control does not use the Interval property and calculates the value of each interval based on AxisSettings.Min, AxisSettings.Max and AxisSettings.IntervalCount properties.
